Hi Harry~
I'm new to fibro and I'm also trying to find things to help out with the painful flare ups associated with fibro. I don't have chronic painful lymph nodes behind the ears or neck, but I do have them under my arms. As a matter of fact, that is the first thing I noticed which led me to my fibro DX. I don't know if this is common, but I would like to know if others have the same problem...
to make it clear, this wasn't the only symptom I had. I have had tons of problems with back issues, but when the lymph nodes began to swell and the muscles in my chest and back began to hurt, I went to have it checked out. The other symptoms just began to make better sense to me!

Hi Harry,

I had the same problem with lymph nodes. It ended up being bartonella - a tick borne infection. Have you been to a doctor proficient in this area?

If you need a doctor in your state that can help you please email
Good luck.
